Stevens Point man arrested for 10th OWI

Posted: Updated:

STEVENS POINT (AP) -- A Stevens Point man has been arrested for his 10th drunken-driving offense.

A Stevens Point Journal Media report says 38-year-old  Michael Vollrath is set to make an initial court appearance March 10.

Portage County deputies arrested him Friday about 1:30 a.m. after finding his car in a ditch in the town of Linwood. A judge ordered him held on a $25,000 cash bond pending the filing of formal charges.

Vollrath was on supervision for his ninth operating-while-intoxicated conviction when he was arrested.  His first conviction was in 1994.

Assistant prosecutor Cass Cousins says Vollrath's blood-alcohol level was 0.27 percent, more than three times the legal limit.

Vollrath has served four prison terms for drunken-driving convictions.   He was also convicted of felony escape.
